The rain couldn't stop students having fun celebrating Shrove Tuesday with pancakes earlier today (Tuesday).

Pupils in years 5 and 6 at Howe Green House School, Great Hallingbury got involved in pancake relay races on the school's tennis courts.

There were thrills and a few spills while they had a 'flipping' good time!
